A discarded or lost guitar pick from a concert makes for a great souvenir, but if inventor JT Hollin, Jr.’s creation catches on, there may never be an MIA guitar pick again. The Pic Band is akin to the wrist strap that stops your digital camera from plummeting to the ground should you drop it, but instead of preserving a $100+ piece of electronics, it holds on to a $0.05 piece of plastic.
Now I’m sure it works as promised, and is probably a handy solution if you’re in the middle of a performance and don’t have easy access to replacements. But it unfortunately doesn’t work with regular picks, and besides the $8 you’ll need to buy the wrist strap and tether, it’s an extra $7 for a 6-pack of Pic Band compatible picks. In theory it means you won’t lose picks as often, but it still seems kind of expensive to me.
